Welcome to QUT Accommodation Services

The QUT accommodation service provides students with:

  • information and advice on finding and securing accommodation
  • assistance if you have any problems arising from your accommodation.

The University recommends that you make arrangements to stay in temporary accommodation for the first 1-2 weeks when you first arrive in order to find a suitable longer term accommodation.

Always keep in mind the following tips to stay safe:

  • Never give money to a landlord when you haven't personally seen the property
  • Do not pay deposits or send money before you have personally seen the room
  • Never pay money through a funds transfer to someone you don't know
  • Don't trust emails that say "pay money and I will have the keys delivered to you"

Before renting a house or unit (Renting for Students):

  • Read the tenancy agreement thoroughly before you pay any money and before you sign it
  • Make sure you keep a copy of the agreement (RTA Form 18a in General tenancy agreement or R18 in Rooming accommodation)
  • Be clear about the rent – how much, when it must be paid, and what it includes (e.g. if utilities, water, furniture or yard maintenance are included)
  • Get receipts for any money you pay (bond or rent)( What is a bond?)
  • Get a copy of the Entry condition report (RTA condition report 1a or R1). Carry out a careful inspection on the property and mark everything you see and take photos of the condition of the property
  • If renting a room, find out about the house rules and any special rules written in the agreement

SCAM ALERT

There are advertisements for accommodation currently in the market that are scamming/stealing from people looking for a place to stay.

If you come across an advertisement that does not look legit, or asks you to send them money, please do not fall into the trap.

Remember the old saying "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is!"
